Nantucket Privet

The perfect privacy hedge! 

Have you ever visited Nantucket? There is something comforting and familiar about being there, even if you’ve never been there before. Is it the quaintness of the town? The warmth of the people? The all-American architecture? The simpleness of well laid out shrub borders? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

You probably can’t make over your town with the quaintness inherent to Nantucket and there’s a good chance that your house isn’t on the register of historic places like many of the homes there, but you can capture some of the spirit and style of this seaside resort. It’s especially easy with a well-manicured hedge of Nantucket Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium).

Whether you use it as a 3 foot high foundation hedge against your white clapboard walls or let it reach its full 15 feet high to keep the looky-loos from peering in, Nantucket Privet will give your yard an air of importance and a certain formal gentility.

This fast-growing shrub is either deciduous or evergreen depending on the severity of your winters. It handles just about any soil condition, even harsh ones. The deep green leaves are the perfect backdrop for sweet white flower clusters in the spring. It is equally happy if you sheer it or let it be.

Nantucket Privet is a great foundation, border or hedge. Order a dozen of these beauties today!

* Very easy care
* Rich green leaves and white spring flowers
* Grows 15 feet tall and wide, but can be pruned to size
* Great border shrub
